Dune: Part 2: New Season is all set to reveal big secrets and big action.

Dune Part 2

Denis Villeneuve’s new film is a mind-blowing continuation of David Lynch’s cult classic that picks up twenty years after the events of the original film. This stunning adaptation will be unlike anything you have ever seen.

What is the plot of the story ?

Twenty years after Paul Atreides (Oscar Isaac), his family, and their allies defeated Harkonnen on Arrakis, Paul must now face his greatest challenge yet: the dreaded Emperor Shaddam of the Imperial House Corrino (Corey Stoll), who is hell bent on destroying the Atreides family. Their rivalry takes them from Arrakis across the universe to other planets and through time as they both schem and save themselves from assassination.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Austin Butler , Timothee Chalamet , Rebecca Ferguson , Benjamin Hodges , Charlotte Rampling , Dave Bautista , Jason Momoa and Josh Brolin . Austin Butler portrayed the role of Duke Leto Atreides. The role of Paul, Duke Leto’s son, was played by Timothée Chalamet. Rebecca Ferguson assumed the role of Jessica, Paul’s concubine. Benjamin Hodges portrayed the role of Duncan Idaho, one of Duke Leto’s advisors. Charlotte Rampling played the antagonist role as Baroness Harkonnen (Count Fenring). Dave Bautista played the important character Liet Kynes (Paul’s son) Jason Momoa portrayed Gurney Halleck and Josh Brolin portrayed Glossu Rabban Harkonnen (Fenring’s nephew).

What are the difficulties they faced ?

As you can expect, adapting a book with such an immense amount of source material was very difficult. It required a lot of patience and hard work to accomplish. Villeneuve has stated that he was surprised at how many years it took to adapt David Lynch’s book. It is safe to say he did not have the same access as Lynch did as he was not one of the screenwriters hired by David Lynch. The themes include love, ambition and the hope to gain control of the Galaxy.
